    I believe just about every post, particularly if it's a long post, goes sideways or out of bounds in one way or another. Just the nature of the beast.

    Me 2. You can get Amsoil through BajaRon or direct from Amsoil. Either way, the price is the same. Ron does not charge extra, he just forwards your order on to Amsoil. Ron is a good guy to deal with.
